Corner View

This week is Corner View´s one year anniversary! To mark the milestone Jane thought everyone could re-post one of their favorite themes of the past year.Since I've only been participating for the last few weeks I decided to look up some of the old themes...And go with the one that I liked the most...Hmmm....I chose two.

Re-purposed
...
C.V. Re-purposed
I use vintage floral frogs to hold pencils and pens...
Sometimes for their original purpose too.

Books...

C.V. Books
C.V. Books
I inherited a love of books. I love everything about them.
Every flat surface, tables, shelves, floors, stools, in my home is supporting my addiction.
I have hundreds. And hundreds.
Though most are in storage the ones in the photos above are new acquisitions or favourites.
See anything interesting?

Happy Anniversary Corner View!!!

I ❤ your stacks of books!

My mom gave the 2 small metal piggy bank globes to my unappreciative niece and nephew ... it was heartbreaking to me ... I would've loved to have had them myself. :(

Yes, re-purposing is the way to go!

Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels is one of my favorites too - have you read her new book? I have not heard any reviews or looked at it yet. I will get to it one day... :^)
